Volunteer Opportunities and Positions:
Client Advocate: Our Client Advocates usually come in at least one day a week. They build relationships with the clients and get to know their specific situations and suggest to Restoration House how we can best serve them. The C.A. sits in the room as the nurse talks to the client and makes sure the client is comfortable. They pray with the client and talk with the client about the client’s life and needs.
Office Support: A volunteer doing office support can come in regularly or sporadically depending on their personal-weekly schedule. Restoration House generally always has paperwork, organizing, and cleaning that needs to be done. Filing, packing envelopes, folding brochures, writing notes, decluttering, cleaning, rearranging, and helping with upcoming events are a few of the regular activities of an office support volunteer.
Baby Closet Helper: A Baby Closet Helper can come in regularly or sporadically depending on their personal-weekly schedule; however, we are in need of a regular volunteer who can commit a consistent time to helping. The Baby Closet Helper will help sort through and clean donated items and clothes. They will help put together our client’s 1 st-4 th visit gift bags/baskets. The baby closet needs to be constantly organized and orderly, as hundreds of donated items come in and out every week.
Property/Building Maintenance: Maintenance can come in regularly or sporadically depending on their personal-weekly schedule; however, we are in need of a regular volunteer who can commit a consistent time to helping. Restoration House is a very old building that is situated on a small property. The house is in need of lots of small and large repairs and the yard is in need of care and maintenance. We probably need a few men or groups who are skilled in construction/contracting/yard care.
Volunteer Group activities: When volunteer groups come in, Restoration House usually has a list of maintenance or baby closet activities for groups to perform. We will also break up the groups to do other assignments in the office or around the building as needed. When we need specific help like painting a room or preparing for an event, volunteer groups really come in handy!
We appreciate all the volunteer support we receive and honestly could not function without the constant care from our volunteers. If you are interested in one or multiple position please contact us, we would love to discuss it with you!
